Hello I am practicing my table tennis skills again and I am quite good with the forehand and backhand counterhit strokes now i am moving onto the topspin strokes but I am having a difficulty in knowing if I am hitting the ball correctly how should I know if the ball that I hit had topspin in it? Thank you for your time.

Hi Majid,

It is good that you are feeling comfortable with the counterhit strokes.

The topspin is just a small variation on the counterhit.  Start by doing some counterhit and then start to brush the top of the ball a bit more.  This will generate the topspin that you are looking for.

Take another look at the tutorial on the Forehand Topspin Against Block and watch the start and finish positions of the stroke and then pay particular attention to the contact.
